Jamie Lynn Spears, the level-headed younger sister of Britney Spears, the drunken, underwear-less pop star and separated mother of two, is pregnant at 16 and changing TV shows. Jamie Lynn the popular Zoey on Nickelodeon’s “Zoey 101” is 3-months pregnant by her 19 year-old boyfriend and hopes to cash in by switching to Viacom’s MTV. Following on the heels of the popular movie “Knocked Up” MTV decided to capitalize on the star’s pregnancy by offering her the new role.
“While we don’t condone or encourage children to get pregnant, we’re willing to capitalize on the opportunity if we can work out the contract details,” said Viacom CEO Philippe Dauman, flipping through pages of Teen Mom Magazine. “Competition is stiff in the younger age groups and it’s been tough going up against Disney’s “High School Musical”, especially with Vanessa Hudgens nude pictures going online. We think the “Knocked Up” movie tie-in coupled with the MTV brand can make this Spears pregnancy drive ratings better than her sisters’ no-underwear pictures did the tabloids. And you know what a hot property those were.”
Not everyone is comfortable that encouraging 16 year-olds to get pregnant for MTV is the right thing to do. “I thought Jamie was the sane one in the Spears family and wouldn’t join the tabloid set until she was at least 18,” said Linda Lu, a mother of two, from Whoville, who had hoped to keep her daughter Sue from drugs, the seedy side of the Internet and an early pregnancy. “This just isn’t getting any easier.”
In an exclusive with OK! magazine, released on Wednesday, Jamie Lynn Spears, the star of Nickelodeon’s Zoey 101, confirmed that she is 3-months pregnant with the child of her 19-year-old boyfriend, Casey Aldridge. Many considered Jamie Lynn the anti-Britney, able to eke out a showbiz career without the controversy. Jamie Lynn never acquired the fame of older sister Britney and is a minor celebrity, starring in the popular Zoey 101, a Nickelodeon show operated by Viacom. Viacom also owns MTV.
Lynne Spears, the mother of troubled pop star Britney Spears and her pregnant 16-year-old sister, Jamie Lynn said that news of Jamie’s pregnancy shocked her. “Jamie has always been very conscientious and to my knowledge was tucked in bed early every night. Maybe I should have checked on her to make sure she was alone and what she meant when she would call down the stairs, ‘everything is tucked in’.”
In related news, a parenting book written by Lynne Spears has been postponed indefinitely according to Lindsey Nobles, spokeswoman for Tennessee-based Thomas Nelson Publishers. But shares of Viacom were up .10%, or 23 cents, to $43.17 in Wednesday afternoon trading.
